Notes and Updates
With only 2 more weeks of school left, there will not be homework for the rest of the year. I still encourage students to read every night with books from home or on raz-kids. There is also a great math app, called Math Doodles, which will be helpful for students to practice over the summer.
Last week students had a fun time learning and practicing readers theatre, adapting and writing fairy tales, as well as finishing our math unit. They will continue to finish their units and practice their skills.
Please have a good look around home and begin returning all books from the Book Room! We have quite a few books missing from our book sets.
Thank you in advance
From the Library
On 4, 7, and 8 June, students and parents will be able to check out 15 items for the summer recess from the library. Students require parental permission to do this. Please see the attached form. There will also be a copy in this week's Sahifa library news for future reference.
